Welcome to the new academic year

If you are a manager of staff whose work is not computer-based, please print this email and display it in a common work area for them to review.

Welcome back to campus and the start of the 2022/23 academic year! I hope you all had a good summer.

I’ve always loved September because it is filled with promise, with excitement, and with joy.

This week, UBC welcomes thousands of new and returning students, and later this month we can look forward to Homecoming.

You’ll find out more about how we’re welcoming back our students, our plans for Homecoming, and for keeping our campuses healthy and safe (as well as an exciting video overview of UBC), in my latest blog post at https://president.ubc.ca/homepage-feature/2022/09/06/welcome-back/.

To everyone — students, faculty and staff — best wishes for an amazing year.

Santa J. Ono
President and Vice-Chancellor
